...and so they proceed to cut their own throats. All in the name of political expediency.

Who's next of the political correctness list? I wonder.

Well. It’s 2019. And bigotry isn’t as acceptable now.

Because most people are starting to act normally. Instead of insane.

The only hiccup is that there are still some insane people, mainly lead eating boomers and uneducated reactionaries who believe in white genocide because adverts portray mixed race couples. Or that there is a gay agenda because there are gay fictional characters. Or who genuinely think men are oppressed, because Gillette, with the help of men telling their own stories, want men to be better.

Boomers who think there isn’t anything wrong with being scum bags basically. So they’re lashing out. To preserve scumbaggery. Seen again here, because MasterCard want to, what was it again, not assist in funding white supremacy?

And people are calling this political? Yeah, no, as I said, it’s 2019. White supremacy isn’t political anymore. Zero people should be affected by that shift in society. Unless, they are white supremacists and want it to be political.

And that is so sad for the white supremacist group funders. Alexa, play Nazi Punks **** Off.

Jesus.

Juist behave, speak how they want you to speak, think how they want you to think, regurgitate what they tell you to say.

Obey.

Don't have opinions not given to you.










1984 is so effing here.

Bigotry isn't acceptable? Could have fooled me. It seems there is plenty of it. Don't think the way certain people want you to? It's perfectly acceptable to be intolerant of you, openly. That is, of course, what this is.

Remember kids, math is white a white supremacist system, so is science, so is logic.

No, it isn’t.

It seems you are hinting towards bigotry against bigots and bigotry as some sort of equal thing as genuine bigotry.

Which is just a Paradox of Intolerance. It’s not reasoned. Hating white supremacy and white supremacists for their abhorrent views isn’t equal to white supremacists hating people for nothing but their skin colour.

Again, it’s 2019.
And people aren’t stupid enough to ignore that major chasm in enough numbers to continue protecting the actual bigotry that survived unabated for centuries.

They are already talking about charging you more if you weigh too much. Isn't that intolerance of weighing too much?

Ah, but who gets to define what is and is not bigotry? It didn't used to be defined simply as that which we hate hearing.

Fat shaming.

It's probably illegal, but hey!

They're a private company, they can charge whatever they want!

I find it funny that leftists now think it's okay for bakers to not bake cakes.

Well, of course, no one should bake a cake for a filthy bigot.

The irony is so thick you can cut it with a knife, just like that cake.

OK, now let's look at the truth of this story.

"MasterCard is apparently planning to begin blacklisting users over their political views, essentially preventing them from buying anything or conducting business."

No, they aren't. A shareholder group has called for a vote on June 25th about forming a “human rights committee." It is nothing but a proposal.

Mastercard have said that this committee is not needed. In fact, the board has said "The Board unanimously recommends that stockholders vote AGAINST this proposal."

So, no, not only has MasterCard not decided to "blacklist users over political views," they are openly against it happening.

"They even have the blessing of the Securities and Exchange Commission."

No, what they have is the SEC saying that the shareholders can vote on the proposal. It is not an endorsement of the proposal.

And if the shareholders vote for it? What then?

You get yourself a Visa or AmEx if your panties are getting bunched up over them voting on this measure.

MasterCard, Google, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon.. Oh and late night shows, Hollywood, CNN, college campuses, MSNBC, NPR, libraries, public schools..

Should I go on? Yeah. It's pretty clear what's going on here.


Yes it is, this is what I believe is the beginning of the implementation of what the bible calls "the Mark of the Beast".
Basically think and do what what we tell you to do, or your ability to conduct any and all business including personal business will be threatened or eliminated. Imagine not being able to buy a car or a house because of your political perspectives or non-support. Imagine a cashless society where all these institutions must approve you not on your value and worth but on your beliefs. Capitalism will have created a civilization of utter slavery.

Revelations 13: 13-17

This second Beast worked magical signs, dazzling people by making fire come down from Heaven. It used the magic it got from the Beast to dupe earth dwellers, getting them to make an image of the Beast that received the deathblow and lived. It was able to animate the image of the Beast so that it talked, and then arrange that anyone not worshiping the Beast would be killed. It forced all people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to have a mark on the right hand or forehead. Without the mark of the name of the Beast or the number of it's name, it was impossible to buy or sell anything.


This is the real "Endgame"

My point is that these days people are playing awful fast and loose with what a bigot is. These days, someone like Martina Navratilova is a bigot because she doesn't think a man transitioning to a woman ought to compete in women's athletics. That makes her an intolerant bigot against transpeople.

So should she be denied a Mastercard even though she was a tireless advocate for gay rights which would seem to make the very opposite of a bigot?

As a Libertarian I don't really care who gets what from whom, let the free market decide. If MasterCard alienates it's client base then some other faceless entity will take their place and offer their services.

You're already seeing this in the legal cannabis business where the banks cannot offer credit card purchases because of our dopey Federal Government. Smart people are offering services which the big banks cannot. The pissed off white supremacists who cannot get a credit card can start their own, maybe call it MasterRaceCard.

It's not? Seems I see otherwise quite often these days??

So, tell me, if you will, who's next on the chopping block of political correctness run amok?
